Essential to designing exhibits is the process of taking objects and written text and shaping a space to make the objects and stories immersive, interactive, and open to exploration. Rachel and Michael will present a few examples of their process and design for achieving an activated exhibit.
Michael Wilson has a background in theater and interactive experiences. In the last 10 years, Michael has designed exhibits at Bishop Museum, Santa Fe Children’s Museum, Mānoa Heritage Center, and the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, with a special interest and skill in multimedia and interactive exhibit design.
Rachel Filbeck has worked as a designer and technician in theaters across the country, namely in New York, New Jersey, Missouri, Arkansas, and Hawaiʻi. She has won two Poʻokela awards recognizing her set designs for The Spitfire Grill (University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa) and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime (Manoa Valley Theatre). Rachel debuted as an exhibit designer at Bishop Museum with Spineless Wonders: Rising from the Deep.
